Inovação Tecnológica E Exportações Das Firmas Brasileiras


  • Fernanda de Negri


This paper analyzes the relation between technological patterns and external performance of the Brazilian firms. The main results show that: i) technology is an important element for the exporting performance of the Brazilian firms, as much for its insertion in the international market how much for the magnifying of the exported volumes; ii) innovative firms have higher export performance then non innovative firms, specially when innovation is not restrict to adequacy of products and processes; iii) Process innovation are important for the exportation of lesser technological intensity; iv) Process and product innovation are important for the exportation of medium technological intensity products; v) Finally, the Brazilian exports of high technological intensity products are not affected by product innovations. This suggests that the competition pattern of Brazilian firms is far from the world-wide pattern, that is based in product innovations.
